To My Boy album preview!
Here is a preview of the upcoming To My Boy album!
The Habitable Zone Sampler by To My Boy
After taking a brief break the boys are back veering away from the previous new rave tag placed upon them... it's a very new sound full of rich spacey pop perfection that won't leave your head for quite some time... read more in the press below:
To My Boy will release their sophomore album, The Habitable Zone, through their Von Braun imprint on the 31st May 2010.
The follow-up to 2007’s Messages catches the duo of Sam and Jack embarking on a new musical voyage, leaving behind the computer world in search of The Habitable Zone; the area around a star where the conditions to support life are just right. Planet Earth sits in one of these zones, but clings to it by the skin of its teeth, with impending doom in every direction. It's a beautiful but frightening position to be in.
A physicist and songwriter, Jack has been working on an energy device called a ‘Tokamak’ which recreates the conditions of a star on the surface of the earth. This will go on hold next month, as the release of The Habitable Zone brings life back into the beautiful machine and To My Boy.
The Habitable Zone, self-produced in the hills of Derbyshire, has already started receiving favorable press; “To My Boy are back with more winning eccentricity. But this time, it’s less oddball electro-pop, more sad-eyed folktronica...sweetly sad-eyed and lovely” (NME), as well as plays on John Kennedy’s XFM ‘Xposure’ and Steve Lamacq’s BBC 6 Music shows.
The video for lead single, ‘Hello Horizon’, is now available to view online. This will be followed by the full release of the album on physical and digital formats on Monday 31st May.
